black titles spine; "Since the Statue of Liberty came under fire from the home shore, deep cracks have appeared in the plinth. Inextricable involvement in Vietnam, the rising temperature of racial strife, the assassination of public figures have combined with other factors to breed a mood of resistance to the 'system' which was once a 'way of life'. Andrew Kopkind's trenchant comments on American politics - the reflection of a human attitude rather than of any hard-and-fast theory - are already known in England through his articles in the New Statesman, Some of these, linked with others which have been printed in American periodicals, form the body of this Penguin Special. They yield a recognizable picture of American society at a crucial moment in its evolution - a picture sharply focused through the eyes of one of the most incisive young political commentators in the States, These pieces on American political leaders, the party conventions, the race war, and the precarious American empire were mostly written 'on the road' by a working journalist, who has added a consldered analysis of the Presidential election. Often assertive, always graphic, they forcefully convey the sense of social fragmentation which pervades America today."; 300 pages. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1.
